My current rate is $250 per hour.
My retainer or initial deposit depends on the complexity and scope of work to be performed.
For the preparation and drafting of each patent application, a retainer in the amount of $2500 will be most likely required;
for each trademark, the retainer will be most likely around $500. The retainer may or may not cover all the legal expenses
for your case, and the client will be billed upon the completion, or if it is a long project, sometime during each month.
There is opportunity for exploring whether a flat rate would be applicable to
your situation. This is usually reserved for work that is in bulk, consistent and repetitive (with minor variations
in what is being prepared, filed or prosecuted). Please call me to discuss your particular situation.
